I talked to my cousin who's is in the business. he used to be a site supervisor, he might still be. he said framing basement walls in front of the insulation is fine, as long as its properly insulated. I thought about it, and I think the walls are secured at the top (at the bottom of the floor joists) and at the bottom by putting a 2x4 along the floor. Is this correct? in that case, the foundation walls are not supporting the framing anyways and not adding strength to the walls. the only problem with framing a basement like this is that it wastes space.
